indication it involves recapturing the entire province especially since turkey continues to have a military presence there and still maintain a strong alliance with russia and of. beirut when i can speak to caroline adding she's a syria advocacy director at world vision she joins us live from amman in jordan to give us an idea of the scale of this refugee problem has been created by this intensified bombing in syria where we seen just in the last week one hundred fifty thousand people have fled their homes along that front line area in southern italy moving northward through the governor and a lot of those people will have already been displaced at least once or maybe more their families have been forced to flee from other areas by what's been almost continuous fighting in some of these areas for the last eight years of conflict so now hundred fifty thousand people moving into northern ireland to areas completely overwhelmed to be honest already with families have been displaced so she managed and struggling to provide just basic things like ten's and blankets and food and
10:05 pm
water to those families are arriving more people are coming every day what about what was on the move are they safe any safer kind of moving than they are under the bombardment. i mean you know have people taken their lives in their hands often whether they label whether they stay i think people have made a judgment that intense fighting at the moment and it's so unfortunate off to a period of relative calm after a cease fire that was agreed this huge violence started up again causing civilian casualties attacks on civilian infrastructure so people are picking up with it so they can carry in moving the north is the governor current is is relatively safe but the challenge there as i say is just a complete lack of shelter you'll have people sleeping outdoors people without enough to eat and as more people arrive that just can be more and more of a challenge to those a bit about children as honest and. colleagues i mean seeing lots of children on the move on the road. as he said well vision as is the child for this organization
10:06 pm
and that's one of the biggest concerns for us about half the population of india the children so a huge number of those fleeing kids and their children tell us they tell apart is that that's terrified they've been terrified of being forcibly their hands again they're terrified at the airstrikes in the violence that terrified of losing their family members and we know that they really vulnerable in these difficult conditions on the road as deafening as they're arriving in a crowded displacement camps they're much more vulnerable to the cold it's still quite cold and i hear they're vulnerable to disease that spread that can spread in those camps without proper sanitation so children it really it with care and it's really you know it sounds simple to say but it's really unfair that this is being imposed on children in this area of syria again he's already suffered so much is that this conflict and now being forced to operate their lives free again or to potentially lose their lives and we know the u.n. says that they think children have been killed just over the last week in this moment in time you mention the humanitarian crisis that's ongoing how much help can
10:07 pm
the organizations that are trying to provide assistance give because we hadn't had a whole to report some of the aid and just not able to operate. this is for. some areas along the front lines where it's difficult for humanitarian security but there is a huge aid effort in this area and it's really it's syria and humanitarian workers who are on the ground to bring aid agencies i work vision and support in that effort but it's syrians who are risking their lives to go about it so they still are able to deliver and they're still able to get to people they're moving as people move from frontline areas to displacement camps to other areas they move in with them bringing services with them the biggest challenge really that they're finding at the moment in addition to the insecurity which are so used to having to navigate it's just the sheer numbers of people and the overwhelming needs people are coming with nothing and those aid workers aid agencies on the ground we've already been overwhelmed trying to deal with the crisis in
10:08 pm
